Macon County Blueways Initiative

In partnership with Macon County Parks and Recreation, Macon SWCD will install five canoe launches and one stream access area at three Macon County Recreation Parks.
  • Macon

We will use this grant to install 5 canoe accesses and one stream access.  In conjunction with a previous Duke Water Resources Grant this will tie together more than five stream miles of waterways in Macon County into a navigable “Blueway”.  Macon County and Macon SWCD are excited about this opportunity to increase public use of, and education regarding, the water resources of our county.
